Office of the Mayor and Council update
April 27, 2021


 

Halton’s Mayors and Regional Chair urge immediate sick leave program

 

For the third time in as many months, Halton’s Mayors and Chair have today renewed their call for a paid sick leave program to protect our essential workers and their families.

Encouraged by recent statements from provincial representatives to implement a program, we urge immediate action as we know the lives of our residents are at risk. The result of having to choose between going to work, feeding your family, and potentially exposing your loved ones to disease is resulting in increased cases across the province and in some cases, the tragic loss of life.

Additionally, our economy is at risk. Entire workplaces are now being closed when there is an outbreak. The better solution is to provide sick pay for ill workers to stay at home, keep essential businesses running, and protect employees and their families from further spread.

It is imperative that we all have the ability to stay home if we’re unwell as directed by public health, in addition to:
  • Only going out for essentials
  • Washing and sanitizing hands frequently
  • Covering coughs and sneezes
  • Keeping a physical distance from anyone outside our household
  • Wearing a mask when distance can’t me maintained, even outside, and where mandated
  • Registering for a COVID-19 vaccine when you’re eligible
You can read the full statement by Halton's Mayors and Regional Chair here.
 
Please keep well, stay safe, and let me know of any chance to help by emailing mayor@oakville.ca.

MPP Stephen Crawford delivers statement in support of saving Glen Abbey

 

Yesterday, Oakville MPP Stephen Crawford delivered a statement on the importance of protecting the Glen Abbey Golf Course because of its heritage, its role in the environment, and providing green space.

“We appreciate the kind words Mr. Crawford spoke in the legislature, describing the importance, the history and the environmental significance of Glen Abbey and conveying that several thousand concerned residents have written in against the proposed development.  We are looking forward to some tangible actions from the Ford Government to show they are serious about supporting official municipal plans, and saving Glen Abbey.  It's really actions that count,” says Bill McKinlay from the Save Glen Abbey coalition.

Also looking for action is Oakville Ward 4 Town and Regional Councillor Allan Elgar who says: “I believe the provincial government has the power now to save Glen Abbey by issuing a ministerial order now, or designate the cultural heritage landscape into the greenbelt.”

We welcome the support from residents, community organizations and all local representatives. For more information on the e-mail campaign that MPP Crawford referenced, you can visit https://www.saveglenabbey.ca/act-now-save-glen-abbey/ to learn more.

Full statement:
Mr. Stephen Crawford: It’s always an honour to rise in the Legislature and bring awareness to the importance of the Glen Abbey golf course in my community. It’s not just a golf course; it’s critical for our local heritage, the environment and providing green space for Oakville.

The golf course is world-renowned and has hosted the Canadian Open a record 30 times. Oakville residents and, indeed, Canadians from across the country visit the course to witness professional golfers make history.

Besides its cultural value, the significance to the environment cannot be ignored. The land plays a role as a nesting area for animals and is home to the Jefferson salamander, which is an endangered species. There are many old-growth trees that fill the property, but are now at risk of being removed for development.

I remain committed to protecting this national treasure and preserving it for future generations. The member from Oakville North–Burlington and I continue to engage with residents, local elected officials and the Save Glen Abbey group. Recently, we hosted a virtual meeting with the Save Glen Abbey group and various ministry officials to address questions and concerns. I have also presented a petition to this Legislature to explore various options to protect the land. Importantly, it was an honour to host the Minister of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries in Oakville a number of months back to visit the course first-hand and see why it needs to be protected.

My office continues to receive thousands of emails from residents in my riding and across Ontario to save the course. I want to thank everybody who has written in. I will continue to advocate for protecting this great green space.

Rainbow crosswalks coming to Oakville to celebrate diversity and inclusion

 
 

The Town of Oakville is pleased to announce its first ever rainbow crosswalks will be installed in town this June.

On Monday night, Council approved the implementation and funding plan presented by staff to install three rainbow crosswalks at key locations within Oakville’s Business Improvement Areas, as recommended in the Advancement of Community Infrastructure report from Mayor Burton brought forward to Council at its March 29, 2021 meeting. To align with area Pride Month celebrations, it is anticipated that the multi-coloured crosswalks on Lakeshore Road at the intersections of Navy Street, Kerr Street and Bronte Road will be installed by June 18.

“My Council colleagues and I are committed to inclusion and celebrating the diversity of Oakville,” said Mayor Rob Burton. “This important initiative is a way to demonstrate the town’s solidarity with members of the LGBTQ2+ and BIPOC communities here, across the country and around the world. I am delighted that this project is moving forward.”

A number of requests from students and community members have been received by staff to introduce rainbow crosswalks to the town’s streetscapes as a gesture of support for LGBTQ2+ community members, while showcasing the town’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. Following consultation with these groups and research on design, town staff will be using a longitudinal design style for the crosswalks, featuring Pride flag colours, with the addition of black and brown stripes to represent Oakville’s diversity.

“We want to ensure Oakville is a place where everyone feels welcome. The many and diverse individuals living and working in our community are the heart of Oakville,” said Jane Clohecy, CAO. “As a municipality, we continue to strengthen our commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion in all of our efforts to ensure Oakville is a welcoming community for all.”

For more information, please see Item #7.7 included in the April 26, 2021 Council meeting agenda.

The Town of Oakville is taking action to control gypsy moth infestation Aerial spray program in town woodlands, May 2021

 
This spring, the town will be conducting an aerial spray in select town woodlands with a safe and naturally occurring pesticide to control gypsy moth infestation. Please visit oakville.ca and search “gypsy moth” for more information and a map of spray locations.

Based on population surveys conducted in 2020, Oakville faces extreme levels of gypsy moth this year that could affect 102 hectares (252 acres) of town woodlands and result in a significant loss of trees if no action is taken.

When:
  • Aerial spraying will occur between May 1 and June 15, 2021, most likely in mid-May once the gypsy moth caterpillars have emerged. Spraying will take place early in the morning, between 5 and 8 a.m.
  • Two treatments will be necessary within a few days of each other.
  • Aerial spray dates are highly dependent on weather conditions. Once dates are confirmed, we will post them online at oakville.ca and on our Facebook and Twitter feeds.
  • Additional ground spraying may occur during the same period to target town trees adjacent to woodlands that have been identified as high-risk for gypsy moth presence.
How:
  • Spraying will be performed by a low flying helicopter over the designated woodlands.
  • The treatment being used is Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies kurstaki (Btk), registered under the trade name of Foray 48b Biological Insecticide Aqueous Suspension. Btk is approved for use by Health Canada and has been identified as the most effective method to control gypsy moth infestation in woodland areas. 
Where:
  • There are 15 woodlands in the gypsy moth aerial spray program. Visit oakville.ca to review the affected woodland in your area.
  • The designated woodlands and trails will be closed temporarily during the spray and reopen immediately after. Closure signs will be posted. Some roads may be closed briefly as the helicopter passes.
  • Aerial spraying will not take place over town streets or residential properties.
 
What should I do?
  • No special precautions are required for residents near the spray areas. You may wish to alter your early morning plans such as running or dog walking on spray days or if you prefer, remain indoors and close windows during the spraying, but this is not necessary.
  • There are no health concerns with entering the woodlands after trees have been sprayed.
About gypsy moth
Gypsy moth is a non-native insect that is considered a major destructive pest in North America. These insects can be a concern because the larvae (or caterpillar stage) feed voraciously, mostly on the leaves of leafy trees such as oak. If the population is high, they can eat all the leaves on a tree in a short amount of time. While trees can often survive one season of losing leaves, successive years where leaves are lost can cause trees to die and become unsafe.

About Bacillus thuringiensis Kurstaki (Btk)
The aerial spray will use Foray 48B Biological Insecticide Aqueous Suspension, containing active ingredient Bacillus thuringiensis, subsp. kurstaki (Btk) strain ABTS-351, (PCP# 24977) under the Pest Control Products Act (Canada). Research shows that Btk used in aerial spray programs has no negative environmental or human health effects. Btk is a bacteria which occurs naturally in soil. The bacteria is poisonous only to a certain group of insects when ingested during their larvae stage. Btk does not affect adult moths or butterflies or other beneficial insects such as honeybees, pets, birds, fish, or mammals. If you have questions or concerns related to the health impacts of aerial spraying with Btk, please call the Region of Halton Public Health Department at 905-825-6000.

More information
Public safety and the health of our environment are top priorities at the Town of Oakville. We understand there might be some inconvenience on the mornings the aerial spray takes place and we appreciate your patience and cooperation. You can find more information on oakville.ca. For any further questions please contact ServiceOakville at 905-845-6601 or toll-free at 1-877-625-8455 or service@oakville.ca.

Ontario Expands COVID-19 Vaccination Booking to Individuals 45 and Over in Hot Spot Communities


Licensed Child Care Workers Across Ontario Eligible to Book Vaccine Appointments This Week

The Ontario government is expanding booking for COVID-19 vaccination appointments to individuals 45 and over in designated hot spot communities in 13 public health units, as identified by postal code, through its provincial booking system. Child care workers in licensed child care settings across the province will also be eligible to book their COVID-19 vaccination appointments.

As of 8:00 a.m. today, all individuals who are 45 and over in 2021, living in one of the 114 high-risk neighbourhoods, will be eligible to book a COVID-19 vaccine appointment at a mass immunization clinic through the provincial online booking system and call centre or directly through public health units that use their own booking system.

“This is a step forward in Phase Two of our vaccine distribution plan to ensure we are protecting people and communities most at risk,” said Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health. “By using every available channel to deliver vaccines, we are working to vaccinate Ontarians as quickly as possible and stop the spread in our communities. I encourage everyone who is eligible to book their appointment as soon as they can.”

Despite facing consistent challenges in receiving a stable and reliable supply of COVID-19 vaccines, Ontario has continued to ramp up capacity and expand its rollout to additional groups.
Keeping childcare open is critical to the mental health and well-being of children and in supporting working parents in Ontario. Effective Thursday, April 29, 2021, child care workers in licensed child care settings will be eligible to book an appointment through the Provincial Vaccine Booking Line number at 1-833-943-3900 or directly through public health units that use their own booking system. Eligible workers in licensed child care settings will receive a letter from their employer. This letter must be available at the point of booking and taken to the vaccination appointment. In the coming weeks, eligibility will be expanded to child care workers in unlicensed child care settings across the province.

“Ontario’s child care workers are making a difference and supporting working parents at this critical time,” said Stephen Lecce, Minister of Education. “That’s why child care workers provincewide will be eligible to book a vaccine appointment. Our child care centres are safe and the expansion of vaccines will further protect children and staff.”

Ontarians who are now eligible to book their vaccine appointment are asked to be patient, as it could take time for them to receive an appointment. Vaccine administration rates are based on supply of vaccines from the federal government, local context and may differ as vaccine supply is delivered across the province. For more information on local vaccine rollout, individuals are encouraged to visit their public health unit’s website.

"Expanding age bands within hot spot communities is part of our targeted approach to help limit the spread of COVID-19 in neighbourhoods and communities that have been disproportionately impacted by this deadly virus,” said Solicitor General Sylvia Jones. “I am encouraging everyone to please get vaccinated when it is your turn as this is the best way to protect your health and the health of those around you.”

Ontario Introduces Legislation to Strengthen Health Workforce Accountability and Enhance Data-Driven COVID-19 Response


Proposed Bill would Support High-Quality, Patient-Centred Care

Today, the Ontario government introduced legislation that, if passed, will help strengthen Ontario’s health care workforce and support the delivery of high-quality care by regulating personal support workers, physician assistants and behaviour analysts. This legislation would also enhance the province’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic by promoting the timely reporting of COVID-19 vaccine data to the Ministry of Health. The proposed legislation is part of the government’s commitment to build a more connected, patient-centred health care system.

“The health and well-being of all Ontarians has always been our government’s top priority, and we are committed to ensuring our health care workforce has the supports and resources they need to keep Ontarians safe and healthy,” said Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health. “The proposed legislation recognizes the important work of personal support workers, physician assistants and behaviour analysts in delivering high-quality care to Ontarians each day, especially throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The Advancing Oversight and Planning in Ontario’s Health System Act, 2021, would, if passed, further recognize the important role of select health and supportive care staff in delivering high-quality care to patients across the province. Specifically, the legislation would:
  • Establish a new legislative framework to support greater uniformity of education and training standards for personal support workers and would build on their capacity to provide care services to the most vulnerable Ontarians, including children, older adults and people with disabilities;
  • Regulate physician assistants as new members of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, to improve their integration within Ontario’s health care system and facilitate quality of care and patient safety;
  • Regulate behaviour analysts as a new profession under the College of Psychologists of Ontario, to sustain the quality and safety of care provided to Ontarians;
  • Support timely reporting to the ministry of all relevant data from COVID-19 vaccination sites, including voluntary socio-demographic information.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, personal support workers (PSWs) have worked tirelessly to keep Ontarians safe and healthy. As PSWs continue to play a greater role in Ontario’s health system, the proposed legislation would establish a new legislative framework that supports consistency in education, training and standards of practice for the province’s personal support workforce, regardless of work setting or employment type.

“Health care workers go above and beyond every day to ensure our loved ones receive the care they need and deserve,” said Dr. Merrilee Fullerton, Minister of Long-Term Care. “Personal support workers are the backbone of long-term care. This proposed legislation is another way for us to recognize their contribution and foster an environment that supports their personal and professional aspirations.”

A new oversight body, called the Health and Supportive Care Providers Oversight Authority would be established for the registration of PSWs and would have defined roles, responsibilities and accountabilities. Further details will be set out in regulation following extensive consultation with the sector.

“Individuals and families deserve to have confidence in their service providers and know that their loved ones are getting high-quality care,” said Todd Smith, Minister of Children, Community and Social Services. “Those who rely on personal support workers deserve peace of mind knowing their choice is protected through oversight and established standards of care.”

The proposed legislation builds on the Ontario government’s ongoing efforts to support Ontario’s health and supportive care workforce, including investing $700 million in temporary wage enhancements and over $115 million to support a historic accelerated training program for personal support workers

Government of Canada assists Ontario with COVID-19 response

 

Throughout the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic response, the Government of Canada has been providing significant support to each province and territory.

Today, the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, the Honourable Bill Blair; the Minister of National Defence, the Honourable Harjit Sajjan; the Minister of Health, the Honourable Patty Hajdu; and President of the Queen’s Privy Council for Canada and Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, the Honourable Dominic LeBlanc confirmed that the Government of Canada will be providing more help to Ontario in response to the province’s request for assistance to support the ongoing fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

In response to this request, the federal government is prepared to deploy federal health human resources, provide support from the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), and fund the redeployment of the Canadian Red Cross (CRC) to augment or relieve staff within medical care facilities. In addition, the CAF will be providing airlift of medical personnel from Newfoundland and Labrador and possibly other jurisdictions.

The CAF is preparing to deploy up to three multi-purpose medical assistance teams (MMATs), which are scalable healthcare provider teams primarily composed of Nursing Officers and Medical Technicians as well as additional CAF members for general duty support as applicable. The MMATs will be rotated in and out of the province rather than deployed simultaneously to ensure that CAF support is sustainable. Work is currently underway to complete on the ground assessments, which will determine the exact number of CAF personnel who will be dedicated to this request.

Tomorrow morning, Royal Canadian Air Force personnel will be flying medical personnel from Newfoundland and Labrador to Toronto to help in Ontario medical facilities.

The Government Operations Centre has staff working to coordinate the federal response to the situation in Ontario. Canadians can be assured that all orders of government are working together to deliver the required help.

The federal government has supported Ontario with safe isolation sites for temporary foreign workers, CAF and the CRC for long term care facilities, two mobile health units, and Canadian Rangers in a number of small communities.
